perfume of plumeria, gently sways the palms and rustles the glistening leaves of the algaroba trees that shade the house
nestled on the upper slope of Punchbowl Hill above the bustling tropical city of Honolulu. This house, now a virtual
museum, has been the ancestral home to the Chan family for decades. So, please dear visitor, accept
an unworthy yet heartfelt welcome to you, our honored guest!
Each room of this venerable old home will hopefully
offer an opportunity to learn a few new facts about the life and work of illustrious detective and family patriarch Charlie

OUR WEEKLY CHAT/FILM VIEWING (Charlie Chan Film Tour 2021!):
Monday, June 14
Monday, June 21
consider accepting this humbly offered invitation to join
with us as for our Charlie Chan Family Chats as we journey together each week on our 2021 tour through
the Charlie Chan film series!
On Monday, June 14 we will be sharing Phantom of Chinatown, staring Keye Luke (whose birthday we celebrate) as detective James Lee Wong. On
Monday, June 21, our film will be Murder Over New York, starring Sidney Toler.
Each Monday evening we watch a feature together through
the magic of synchronized personal video players or from online versions via YouTube, etc.! Our evenings begin
at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time with arrivals and greetings.
First, we enjoy a short "extra" together, and then, at precisely 8:15, we start our
synchronized playing of our personal or online copies of our feature for that night, allowing us to share our insights,
trivia, and FUN!
If you do not have access
to a copy of our featured presentation (please note: a good number of Charlie Chan movies, and others, are available via
the Internet at such sites as YouTube, dailymotion, and retrovisionmedia), please join with us anyway! Our conversation wanders from the picture at hand to most any subject relating to Charlie
Chan, and you will be included in all of the fun! Need it be said
that ALL are most welcome, especially "first-timers"?
So, we hope to see you in our Chat Room this Monday evening, as there is always a chair awaiting you, our honored guest...
